World Wide Knit in Public Day 2009

Saturday 14th June was International World Wide Knit in Public Day. The Ravelry Rocketeers met at Ringwood and then some of us headed into the city to meet with other knitting groups. We spent a couple of hours cosily ensconced in Feddish (nice locale but the food was average) at Fed Square having some lunch and well knitting in public.

I caught the train home and did some futher knitting in public, doing some jaywalker socks for my Mum which illicited some sidelong glances and some outright questions. I find that the generation of people who knitted themselves are more likely to be surprised to see anyone knitting socks than they are impressed or pleased. I guess when it was a neccessity perhaps it wasn't considered such a pleasure as I take it to be. I'm sure that they didn't have access to the deliciously scrumptious Colinette Jitterbug sockyarn that I do :)

My First Spin with the Healesville Spinners and Weavers

Meagan and I went to the Healesville Spinners and Weavers meeting on Saturday 6th of June and it was fantastic. There is a lot of talent, skill and knowledge in the group and they have been meeting for a very long time in the same hall. I look forward to going back next month. As Char says pics or it didn't happen... me spinning zomg...

Just a Quickie!

Hi Knitizens, Friends and Family :) It's the Queen's birthday long weekend and as an atheist republican I'ld just like to say God Bless the Queen for being born so we can have a long weekend.

So here is my new wheel! Bee-you-ti-ful!

Below I've added piccies of the plate that I painted with Matt on my birthday morning also with the mugs that Matty painted. We had so much fun and I love eating off my new crockery it just makes me so happy. I'm doing a theme called "Life is" and my next plates are going to be "Life is nuts" with squirrels on it and "Life is a hoot" with an owl painted on it which I got from my friend Andrea who is mental about owls like me :) I can't wait to go back to Robert Gordon and do more.
